Title IX Violation Resolved in Our Son's Favor

Our son was accused of a Title IX violation in his freshman year of college. Though it seemed like the actual accusation was minor, we were concerned about possible repercussions and outcomes. We found Mr. Lento's number online, left a message for him in the evening and he called back that same evening. He was completely familiar with cases like our son's and took time to hear the details, give us an overview of the likely procedures and discuss possible outcomes with clarity and forthrightness. He covered a lot of details that we hadn't thought of pertaining to the accuser, the accusation, the college, the Title IX process, strategies and our son's future with knowledge and confidence. He was very clear on his involvement, fees, and next steps. He talked with our son right away and was calm, encouraging and honest with him about potential outcomes. Throughout the almost 4 month process, Mr. Lento was completely involved, talking and emailing with us and our son often daily, calling the school on our son's behalf, attending meetings with our son at the school, writing detailed formal submissions to the school and following up at all times. There were some ups and downs with the case and Mr. Lento accommodated them all promptly, and with professionalism and encouragement. We feel incredibly lucky that our son's case resolved in his favor, but know that a large part of that luck had to do with Mr. Lento's attention to detail and skill in navigating the process. We highly recommend Mr. Lento.
